Wet wraps and eczema gloves have similar roles. They keep the moisture to skin for a longer period of time and prevent scratching. Many eczema sufferers have poor skin barrier. Their skin tends to have low moisture. Frequent scratching further damages the skin barrier, which leads to more water loss. As a result, the skin gets dry, flaky, even raw.
Wet wrap therapy often uses fabrics such as cotton. It gets soaked in water and wrapped around the affected skin on the body. Sometimes, gauze or surgical netting are used for certain area. It is recommended to apply after a bath. In addition, moisturizers or medications need to be applied prior to wrapping. Afterwards, pajamas or a sweat suit is recommended on top as an additional dry layer.
Eczema gloves are made of cotton, bamboo, or a blend of viscose from Bamboo/Spandex. Some are encapsulated with zinc oxide that has anti-microbial properties.
The key issue with wet wraps or eczema gloves are they can be uncomfortable especially during cold winters or hot summers. Imagine in a hot summer evening, the whole process you need to go through to put on wet wrap on your little one; first the moisturizer, then medication, then wet wrap followed by dry layers! Good luck to keep your little one still!
The eczema gloves are easier to use, however, it is still necessary to put on moisturizers and/or medication prior. Because the gloves themselves do not ease itching or replenish water to the skin.
